Let’s start with my favorite post-workout drink. A chocolate banana protein frappe. It was so nice and thick, and even better since it was in my favorite glass. I briefly dated Jeff Gordon’s twin when I spent time in Los Angeles, and he gave me 4 of these glasses. There is this bar called “Tony’s on the Pier,” and the story behind these glasses are that there was a shot that they poured in these monstrous glasses and actually lit it on fire. You got to keep the glasses after the shot. Well, apparently this boy loved his fireball shots!
A repeat lunch that I am in love with and can’t not eat is my turkey spaghetti squash. I want to try a pesto sauce with the spaghetti squash next, so any good healthier pesto recipes, please send my way!
You are about to see a lot more asparagus around here. I was talking to my coach about how she manages to stay full when she is prepping for a competition and cuts her carbs. She told me several foods that she focuses on because of their low carb content, meaning you can eat a lot. This plate boasted only 3 grams of carbs with the asparagus, and there was so much! Asparagus pee here we come! The grilled chicken is the work of my wonderful grill master Dad. 🙂
Snacks have been fruit based around yogurt and nut butter.
Plain yogurt + PB2 + banana slices = pre-bedtime snack.
This was actually Sunday night’s dinner. Oven roasted olive oil spritzed asparagus (chef Momma), and sweet steak & chicken, from the grill master himself. Such an amazing dinner. Why did I move out again?
And here is the best thing that has ever been in my mouth. Mediterranean Crusted Salmon. The crust was made from sun-dried tomato and pine nuts. Aka omg! Words cannot describe how naughty and delicious this tasted.
I didn’t even feel like I was eating salmon. This was a frozen meal that I bought when I first moved into my apartment… 6 months ago. Why I waited so long to eat it is unbelievable, but I am going to eat this multiple times per week. With a side of 2 dippy eggs and sweet red peppers. Paradise.
I first came across I Heart Keenwah in one of my fitness magazines, and instantly became curious. When I reached out, they were more than excited to partner up and offer me a bag of their quinoa clusters for myself and one lucky Running on PB reader!
I Heart Keenwah came about when four friends who were frustrated with the lack of ready-to-eat quinoa options came together and created a crunchy, sweet treat, that truly tastes amazing. I’m talking super addicting!
When it came time to brainstorm for the clusters, they came up with a list of requirements:
- gluten-free & all natural
- short ingredient list that is recognizable and easy to understand
- minimally processed foods
Not only did they do this, but they made a product that tastes too good to be true. I grabbed a handful of the clusters yesterday morning before heading to Crossfit to give me a little energy to get through the workout. They kept my hunger at bay and powered me through hindu push-ups, handstand kicks, deadlifts, and running.
As much as I wanted both bags to myself, I want one of you beloveds to try them for yourself.
